A yard should more than cover ears and a tail (for example of what aproximately 1/4 a yard can do, you can see my fai coat). Or are you needing a whole bunch of colors?

I just made a tail myself out of 1/4 yard of white faux fur that was 60" wide. So even with seam allowances and cutting it a bit shorter, I had a tail that was nearly 30" long and some extra fabric left. So yeah, I agree with o01101011 that it should do for you unless you need lots of colors or want a tail so huge you need more fabric...but if you go too big it will look weird.

I also second that it shouldn't take that much fabric to do those. I mistakenly got a yard of fur, and I didn't really realize exactly how much fabric that was. Now I have a TON left over. I wish i got like an 1/8th or something. Although now I'm planning on another cosplay that can actually use the rest of the stuff up.

sorry to hijack the thread, but does distinctivefabric.com ship worldwide? I could not fine any information about this on their website, so I guess they don't. But it doesn't hurt to ark, right?

One yard will be plenty for this, you might even get lucky and be able to find a white fur at a local store so you don't have to order a full yard of that, too.

"International shipping is not currently available. "

So, no, they dont ship internationally.

I like CR Crafts - I used long white pile fur for my Felicia. They sell sample cards for $1 each that come with multiple fur samples.
